Scientists achieve quantum teleportation of data with 100 percent accuracy

Dutch scientists working with the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology have made a stunning breakthrough in quantum technology by successfully teleporting data across a distance of about 10 feet with perfect accuracy, reports the New York Times . The advance ought to have Albert Einstein, who famously dismissed the idea of quantum teleportation as "spooky action at a distance," rolling in his grave. Einstein struggled mightily with many of the theoretical consequences of quantum theory, perhaps none moreso than the notion of entanglement-- the phenomenon that makes teleportation possible. It's easy to understand why; the idea is, well, downright spooky. Entanglement is the weird instantaneous link that has been shown to exist between certain particles, such as photons or electrons, even if they are separated by vast distances. Although entan...
